The government is investing $82 million over 10 years to provide 50,000 rebates on solar panels for Victorian renters.  

The installation of solar panels is expected to save a typical Victorian household $890 on their electricity bill every year, while landlords will benefit by getting panels at low cost. 

Owners corporations will also be eligible. In order to receive the 50 per cent rebate and no-interest loan, they will need to demonstrate that the benefits of installing solar panels will be passed on to tenants. 

Solar Victoria is responsible for delivering the Solar Homes package and will provide further details on the program for renters and landlords in the coming  


From 1 July 2019, the Solar Homes program will introduce rebates for up to half the value of the installation of a battery storage unit for 10,000 households that already have solar panels installed.
